My eating has been out of control and my activity level nearly non-existent.
It is like I am trying to prove that I can still get by just doing whatever I want. Reality Check: it is NOT working for me. If I want a healthier, longer life, I have to MAKE IT HAPPEN. I will live today like it really matters because it does. I will Do IT for myself.
The scale is creeping up and I have been unwilling to buckle down and do something about it. How long am I going to let this stubbornness rule my life? It doesn't help that it is gloomy outside and my neck and shoulders ache from rheumatism.
Enough self-pity already. Everyone has some cross to bear. My choices rule, so let's see how much responsibility I am willing to accept today.
Doesn't sound like the attitude of a person determined to make life happen on purpose, does it? "Just do it" is tracking across my mind.
I hope you have a great day and thank you so much for stopping by and letting me vent. I do appreciate it. Hugs from Janet
I woke up this morning and decided I wanted freedom from tracking. I ate what I wanted when I wanted it; but tonight I feel bloated and stuffed.
I talked to my 'chosen sister', Pat, and she said to track it anyway and face the music. So I did. This is day #115 of tracking and I am not willing to give up my ongoing streak. And I am not willing to give back my progress either.
I have had no fruit or vegetables yet today, so I am going to have an orange and some carrots before I go to bed. I don't have to wait until morning. I need some nutrition tonight.
The people on this site keep me going and reel me in when I am floating away. I thank you very much for being there for me.
I feel renewed hope again. And my journey goes on. Take care and hugs from Janet in chilly Illinois.
I chose to eat too much salty food yesterday and the scale is up about 2# because of it. I accept that; but what happened?
I woke up yesterday morning with the willingness to work on a business project that I have been procrastinating about, so I went into "all or nothing" mode, determined to finish it in one day. There really was no rush. Realistically I have another week before it should be done, but old habits die hard. I did finish the project; but I had no room in my brain for focusing on my food intake.
By the time I took a lunch break, I barely cared what I ate. Then my hubby made duck and noodles, which was very good, but also very salty. So why not have a second serving?
By evening I was able to get my wits about me and finish the day with some string cheese and an apple.
Today is a new day to focus on my health and well-being. Time rolls on and I will get where I am wanting to go.
